The Letter is C
The subject is Curiousity
I had planned to write a nice little philosophical essay on the values and importance of Curiousity in the formation of Creativity and Intelligence (which I heartily believe to be true)......
But when I went to find some images to illustrate my points I came across so many wise and pithy sayings, and so many delightfully entertaining illustrations of curiousity, that I lightened my words and decided to share with you......
A little collection of sayings and curious animals and children
click if you want to look more closely
watch for that man who is inpecting the tonsils of an alligator
for curiousity's sake???
and the voyager of ancient times who is contemplating how far he can go across the ocean
and remember Dorothy Parker's famous saying about boredom
and curiousity and how it applies to our insatiable need
to satisfy our curiousity about the universe.
A picture of the Mars Rover, so aptly named "Curiousity"
and a little smug cat who revels in the fact that Curiousity is now on Mars and cannot be held responsible for the curious cat's death.....
I would like to add a link from Tom Stafford, a Neurohack who has written a column questioning
why we are so curious.. I think you will find it interesting
and a small tip of the hat to the essay I first envisioned.
If you are curious about other interpretations of the letter C hop on over to ABC Wednesday
where Roger and Dennis and their somewhat curious helpers are hard at work.
